[I was watching an old pop video I used to enjoy. Its a Wang Chung video that has the most bizarre screen editing for its time in 1986. I’ve always wondered what the heck went on with this pop video.

It seems TV stations were so sensitive back then about something like this – and I would be most surprised if it ever triggered an actual epileptic fit. But given the utterly bizarre things they DO put on TV, I wonder if that doesn’t do more harm?

On Wikipedia it says this about the weird video editing:

The first music video, directed by musician and film duo Godley & Creme, featured scenes of the band playing in a wood-lined room with very rapid editing between different takes of the same performance. The editing gives the video a somewhat disorienting flip book-like animation style, employing the use of visual jitter. Wang Chung, additional musicians and dancers are seen in several formations throughout the video, including in close portrait and seated along a row of chairs, the seating arrangement of which was changed with each take. Each shot flips through up to four takes of the same shot, with some shots approaching up to 1/24th of a second between edits. This video was banned by television networks from airing after its premiere due to reviews determining that the rapid editing would trigger epileptic seizures, though has re-aired as part of Pop Up Video and appears in its original form on YouTube.[citation needed]

A second version of the video was shot and debuted shortly after the first.[citation needed] The original video later became a collector’s edition.[citation needed]
